New Delhi: He has not had the best of times in the last season, but Shikhar Dhawan showed signs of form in the recently concluded Deodhar Trophy as he hit a hundred and a fifty. And high on confidence, Dhawan has joined his teammates at SunRisers Hyderabad for the 10th edition of the Indian Premier League.

Known to be a fitness addict, Dhawan posted a picture on Twitter where he is having a good time at the gym. The post read: “Big boys in the gym already. First training session @Sunrisers . Looking for a great season ahead... 😊👍🏻👌.”

Dhawan is known to spend quality time in the gym as he likes to stay fit. And with the grueling schedule of the cash-rich league coming up, it is important to stay fit and injury-free.

Some of the top Indian players like KL Rahul and R Ashwin have already been ruled out of the IPL with injuries, not to forget RCB skipper Virat Kohli’s shoulder injury that will see him miss the first few games this season.

With the Champions Trophy coming up post the IPL, the T20 league is crucial for Dhawan to score runs and make a comeback into the national fold. Former India opening partner Rohit Sharma is also looking at the IPL to score runs and make a comeback to the national fold after an injury-induced break.
